Read the section in Susan Faludi's book Backlash on film and "Fatal Attraction" in particular. It has some pretty choice quotes from Michael Douglas on what a sexist dickwad he is. Probably one of the least feminist films of all time.
This would make a great book.
"I wanted to see how extraordinary I could make life for myself." Good answer.
Ah, 1996. A great year. For me to graduate from high school :/
Best one yet. "That's where you keep your treats and treasures!"
reading the phrase "clustered holes" grossed me out more than the picture.
@Poliananana@twitter Goths, metalheads, punks/skinheads, hippies, preps/jocks, nerds, drama club kids over here in my class of 1996. You know who were the nicest, most stand-up dudes? The metalheads. I've found this to be true in my adult life as well. Also, do hippies under age 30 exist anymore?
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll You're right. I just took the many Hispanic characters as an allusion to a future in which Hispanics are the largest population group in North America, but I can definitely see the film's vision of this as being cartoonish. The French speakers on Elysium made sense to me, though, as French and English are the official languages of the UN, the Olympics, etc. - despite the fact that French is spoken by 1.12% of the world population, as opposed to 5.85% Spanish speakers (thanks, Wikipedia).
I thought it was a smart and interesting sci-fi movie. Heavy-handed, yeah, but just as much as District 9 and folks didn't hate on that nearly as much.
